Who we are

HP's Printing business unit is a core pillar in the HP offering set. We make the world's best printers and printer supplies, and the world's best personal computing systems. These products are our core business, which accounts for the vast majority of our approximately $48 billion of revenue.

We operate in large and dynamic markets, and while some of these are in secular decline, there's still lots of opportunity to grow our business by segmenting the opportunities, pursuing areas of profitable growth, and taking a larger share of the markets we target. We can grow our unfair share even as some markets shrink–if we're flexible, innovative, operationally excellent, and hyper-focused on the changing needs of our customers and the world around us. In our core business, we need to protect, defend, innovate, and grow.

To achieve our ambitious targets, we need to expand into new, but related, growth areas. We have an unmatched IP portfolio and the infrastructure and channel to bring new products and services to market. While our current product portfolio is HP's best ever, even better is yet to come. As we explore the frontiers of technology, we'll create, define—and lead—completely new market categories.
